|Title||Precision Mass-Observable Cluster Calibration with the HSC and ACTPol surveys II|
|Author||Prof Nobuhiro Okabe|
|Description||In continuation of our AO15-approved proposal, we hereby propose to complete XMM- Newton observations for a systematic study to calibrate cluster observable scaling relations, using precision, HSC-derived, weak lensing mass measurements and make a stringent test of the assumption of hydrostatic equilibrium of clusters. The exquisite quality of multi-band HSC imaging will enable us to improve both the precision and accuracy of weak-lensing mass measurements. By combining these weak lensing mass measurements with deep X-ray and ACTPol Sunyaev-Zel dovich effect data, we will have an unprecedented ability to constrain the physical state of the ICM. Our project provides an essential bridge to future, cluster-based, cosmological studies by eROSITA.|

|Mission Description||The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
